Nun Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to keep your righteous rules. I am severely afflicted; give me life, O LORD, according to your word! Accept my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me your rules. I hold my life in my hand continually, but I do not forget your law. The wicked have laid a snare for me, but I do not stray from your precepts. Your testimonies are my heritage forever, for they are t he joy of my heart. I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end.
I suspect that when Ish Elohim finally meet at the foot of the Great White Throne, it will be a meeting great joy, second only to our being at the foot of the Throne, in the presence of the LORD, God, the Almighty.
But that presumes several conditions being met that begin with our relationship with the Godhead. Another is our awareness of each other. And the first trumps the latter. I suspect that Ish Elohim and I will nod and agree to meet about an aeon of aeons later, if ever. Sometime after his meeting with King David. Think about it, how often in a family reunion that someone makes a remark that they are looking forward to seeing Aunt Sally Mae and Uncle Butch.
Wrong! We are going to be so overwhelmed to be in the Presence that all else will pale into total insignificance for several eternities.
Join the Ailbe Community
As a member of the Ailbe Community you join a movement of men working for revival, renewal, and awakening, built upon prayer, sharing, and mutual edification. The Ailbe Community is devoted to practicing the Kingship of Jesus in every area of our lives. Go to www.ailbe.org/about to learn more.
Morning Psalm 132, Noon Psalm 119:41-48, Evening Psalm 63. If you follow this regimen, you will pray through the Psalms every 47 days or just under 8 times per year.
An alternate Reading Plan is based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation. This plan, over a several year period will result in an average reading of the entire Bible in slightly over twice per year. I've been following this plan since 1989 and still find the mixture of Scriptures presented each day to be a delightful way to end my day. The NLB app has a scheduling tool that assists greatly in keeping track of the reading list.
Or set your own reading schedule up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits. But a daily time in the Word of the LORD is an absolute.
